UpdateAfter the French fire brigade found a body without limbs under the Austerlitz Bridge in Paris on Saturday, a suspect turned himself in to the police. The 34-year-old man claims he was the 56-year-old victim’s caregiver and that he beat the man to death about a month ago.

Firefighters discovered the mutilated body, which was in a suitcase, around 10pm last Saturday while extinguishing a rubbish fire. Shortly afterwards, other body remains of the victim were found in bags near the site.

The 34-year-old suspect turned himself in on Sunday and was immediately taken into custody. The man is known to the police and was on the wanted list. During questioning, he stated that he was the caregiver of the victim, a 56-year-old man with multiple sclerosis (MS).

Beaten to death

About a month ago, the victim had allegedly behaved disrespectfully towards the suspect’s wife. The latter lost his senses and beat the man in his fifties to death. He is said to have kept the body in his apartment for some time before dismembering it and dumping it under the Austerlitz Bridge.

During his arrest, the suspect was drunk and under the influence of cocaine. The man in his thirties is homeless and has been tried several times in the past, including for drug use, aggravating violence, theft and burglary. According to a police source, he committed those crimes between 2008 and 2020.
